My wife and I ordered the crab combo and it was certainly tasty. I felt bad because we had so much work to do that the kids finished their meals while we had just made a dent in our meal. The staff was okay, not overly friendly and the waitress needed a few reminders about refills and a gluten-friendly substitution... More

Went there for dinner. Great outdoor seating on the second floor, overlooking the harbor. Shrimp and scallops dinner was good. Crab dip was also very good. All you can eat options of crabs/shrimp, crab legs/shrimp or all three, along with chicken, hush puppies and corn on the cob. Great food, a little too much old bay seasoning. Great location and...

Overall good, but a little less than I anticipated. Everything was good but it didn't stand out over other restaurants I visited. Very nice waitress.

Today we had the weekday special - crab soup and any sandwich for $15.50. I think this special is available all summer. The Maryland crab soup had lots of crab meat. It was spicy and delicious. We also had the crab cake sandwiches. These were broiled perfectly and almost all crab. Our server was attentive and pleasant. We got to... More

We took our granddaughters there so they could experience "picking crabs" for the first time. The crabs were good sized and meaty. Absolutely delicious! We had crabs, snow crab legs, shrimp, scallops, corn on the cob, and hushpuppies. It was a delicious feast! Everything was perfect! Excellent service. Friendly staff.

We came here for many years and was never disappointed. We sometimes went twice during the week. It has definitely changed, BUT the cream of crab soup is still the best and the reason that the restaurant gets 3 stars; the soup by itself would be 5 stars.
